    Oh, what a brilliant idea — having a friend draw a map and then follow it and photograph where it takes you… What a sweet idea..! I love it…

    clever idea, indeed.

    My maps are messy and probably I am the only one who understands…lots of landmarks in my maps.

    Very cool map! 🙂 Self drawn maps are always fun! That book looks very inspirational!

    Hey erin! Maps are so cool! And such a great decorating idea. I have such trouble familiarizing myself with new places so I feel your pain!

    Also, I tagged reading my tea leaves for a Kreativ Blogger award, which you can see here: http://themarginalian.blogspot.com/2009/09/tag-youre-it.html

    It looked like a fun way to find other lovely blogs and meet their authors! 🙂

    loving maps right now…as dee said……but if I had to draw a map it would be hilarious……and definitely full of landmarks and not street names…..:)
